Method
 Look at the numbers carefully.
 Rule 1: If a number has more digits than another, it is greater of the two.
 Rule 2: If two numbers have the same number of digits, we compare them by their extreme leftmost digits. The number with the greater digit is greater.
 If the extreme leftmost digits are the same, we compare them by their next digits to the right and so on.
Example: 234,567,876 ? 334,345,456
Both the numbers have the same number of digits, so we compare the digits.
Staring from the left most digits of the two numbers: 2 < 3
Answer: <
Example: 234,567,876 ? 234,567,456
Both the numbers have the same number of digits, so we compare the digits.
Staring from the left most digits (hundred millions place) of the two numbers: 2 = 2
Comparing next numbers (ten millions place) are 3 = 3
Comparing next numbers (millions place) are 4 = 4
Comparing next numbers (hundred thousands place) are 5 = 5
Comparing next numbers (ten thousands place) are 6 = 6
Comparing next numbers (thousands place) are 7 = 7
Comparing next numbers (hundreds place) are 8 > 4
Therefore 234,567,876 > 234,567,456
Answer: >
Directions: Compare the following. Also write at least ten examples and compare the numbers.
